A new gen­er­a­tion of Mid­dle Eastern ‘Le­gion­naires’ were cre­ated this week­end as ’Mud­der Na­tion’ came to­gether as a team to con­quer their fears and com­plete the lat­est edi­tion of du Tough Mud­der in Dubai.

Tak­ing place at Ham­dan Sports Com­plex, com­peti­tors joined to­gether in a life-chang­ing ad­ven­ture and faced the ul­ti­mate chal­lenge of strength, stamina and men­tal grit.

With a line-up in­clud­ing six new ob­sta­cles, the 2018 edi­tion of du Tough Mud­der proved to be the most suc­cess­ful yet with ‘Mud­ders’ trav­el­ling from across the Mid­dle East and fur­ther afield to par­tic­i­pate. With over 40 tonnes of ice, grade-A mud and 40,000 volts, the two-day event in­cluded a 10k course with re­turn­ing ob­sta­cles such as Ever­est 2.0, The Block­Ness Mon­ster and Birth Canal.

The event also wel­comed back du Mini Mud­der, which fea­tured a brand-new 1.5k course de­signed specif­i­cally for ad­ven­ture-seek­ing kids aged 7-13.

Chris­tian Mo­u­far­rej, event di­re­cafter tor for du Tough Mud­der said: “This year’s edi­tion of du Tough Mud­der was un­doubt­edly the best yet.

“It was great to see so many par­tic­i­pants from our pre-event train­ing ses­sions with Ware­house Gym con­quer our epic ob­sta­cles to­day, af­ter us­ing the pro­gramme dur­ing Dubai Fit­ness Chal­lenge to help them pre­pare to get start-line ready.

“The Tough Mud­der brand has con­tin­ued to grow over the past three years and the higher num­ber of par­tic­i­pants this year and feed­back from our ‘Mud­ders’ shows how pop­u­lar the event has be­come.”

Tough stuff: The ad­ven­ture re­quired phys­i­cal and men­tal for­ti­tude.
